Five doctors from Delhi are being hailed as heroes today after they saved a child's life during a mid-air medical emergency on board a Vistara Airlines flight from Bengaluru. The five - from Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences - were alerted to a two-year cyanotic female child returning from Bengaluru after undergoing open-heart surgery and spent a frantic 45 minutes repeatedly reviving the young girl, and ensuring she was alive and breathing by the time the flight was diverted to Nagpur.

NDTV spoke to one of the five doctors, Dr Damandeep Singh, on board that flight for an insight into what happened and the stressful situation that erupted less than half-an-hour after take-off.
